We’re fighting a new war. The Love and the Life are looking for you, for they are God himself. He is the author of life, and he is love - and he wants you.
The great mission of the kingdom is upon us. We are in deep need of a reformation. Jesus himself set the first one in motion; Martin Luther ran point on the second; now it’s time for the third! Experiencing who we are, where we are, and the good God is up to in our life are exactly the ingredients that reform us.
One step at a time, this experience with God, this restoration of our true selves, is what will lead to the next great reformation. Not all will listen; not all will want it. They didn’t in Jesus’ day, nor did they during Luther’s, and they won’t today. But conversions aren’t the goal; intimacy is - intimacy with the Father. Through that intimacy, Jesus showed us what we can believe and how that truth will set us free.
And living free is the best way to offer freedom.
